Sree Narayana Mandiram the premises at Vepery where his holiness used to spent his sojourn in Chennai city was donated by benign philanthropist Alammoottil Sri A.K.Govindadas in 1928. Sri A.K.Govindadas occupies a preminent position among the prominent house holder disciples of Gurudev. He toured extensively to many places to propagate the lofty message of Gurudev. Sri.A.K.Govindadas and KochuKunju Channar are the two dignitaries who had shown their hospitality and devotion to donate the building and site No-5, Huntas Road, (Sree Narayana Guru Road) Vepery, and Chennai-112. to Gurudev, We play Sree Narayana Gurudev to shown his blessings on his holy family and its posterity for all prosperity.
The president and secretary of the Mandiram endeavoured to propagate the sublime philosophy of Gurudev "One Caste, One Religion, and One God for man" in Chennai city.
The exemplary dedication and unflagging energy of the president and untiring efforts of the committee members helped to accomplish this memorable task. The Mandiram now stands as a Serviceable Spiritual Centre in the heart of Chennai city.
Thousands of families without any discrimination of caste, colour, and religion were attracted towards the Mandiram and manifested their devotion by performing pooja in the Sanctum Sanctorum of Guru Mandir. Performance of marriages, Gurupooja in the birthday stars of devotees, homam, special poojas and regular pooja twice daily. Special Gurupooja once in a month on Chathayam day [Birthday star of Sree Narayana Gurudev] and Saravaishrya vilakkupooja are attracting large number of devotees in the Mandiram. We conducted yoga classes (6 days in a week) including meditation and also functioning a marriage bureau.
We wish to inform you that the Jayanthi festival of Sree Narayana Gurudev, the architect of the universal philosophy of "One Caste, One Religion, One God for man", for human solidarity, communal harmony and world peace will be celebrated with solemn devotion and religious favour on every year in the Mandiram premises and bring out a souvenir highlighting the solemn precepts and noble revelations of Sree Narayana Gurudev for universal peace and communal understanding.
